When Lubov Azria sends over a dress from her Fall 2012 collection for you to wear to an intimate dinner party hosted by BCBGMAXAZRIA, you have to pull out all the stops.
Along with doing my hair – shocking, I know – I set aside some “me time” to apply sparkly Sally Hansen Nail Strips that added the perfect touch of glittery punk glamour - hello oxymoron – to my simple silhouette. What’s a stylish dinner party without a good manicure? Am I right!?
As for the dress, I fell in love with it’s sheer color blocking glory when it came billowing down the runway back in February. The top is actually 100% sheer, which on a model with no chest looks great, but on me?…not so much. After toying with a few different bras, I opted for a body hugging long sleeve black shirt that, thankfully, looked like it was part of the dress. Given more time I think I would have gotten away with a nude bandini or bandeau.
The dinner was held at Freeman’s Restaurant – one of my favorites in the city – and the meal itself did not disappoint. It was wonderful to be sitting in a room full of fellow editors and bloggers and Mrs. Azria herself who did a phenomenal job as hostess. I wish we could have a dinner party like this every week!

Back when I first moved to New York and was looking for apartments, I made the mistake of wearing white jeans while on the hunt and wound up coming home with the back half of my pants speckled with gray dirt and dust. Granted it had rained the night before, but still, I was totally grossed out and took a major hiatus from casper pants (not to be mistaken with the casper pale skin I’m currently sporting).
In the past year I have welcomed white jeans back into my life with open
legs arms and am happy to say that this featured pair of Rag & Bone leg casings skinnies have only suffered one speckle of grey dirt because of Finn‘s post dog park paws. Thankfully, there’s this amazing potion called bleach that works like a fairy godmother’s magic wand. Zap! Zing! Stain be gone!
